    Nice one

    Nice collection of stories, heart-felt, touching the realness sometimes; after all, it's from Padmarajan, the maestro himself. Its the same haunting feeling that we get from his movies, the haunting of thoughts, the face of reality...

    Overall, a great collection :)

    Suvarnakathakal thanne

    Padmarajan has always been a celebrated writer in Malayalam. This collection involves some of his best stories (not novels) like Lola, Amrithethu etc. A treasure for all lovers of Malayalam literature. His style of writing is different, really different.

    Also watch-out for the release of his entire work in 2 volumes in April of this year by DC books. Pre-booking has already started.
